HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover : — 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my report on Highways 
and Bridges. 

Tuesday, March 29th, we began work on Pine street, 
grading nearly the entire length. Florence street was graded 
with gravel from Red Springs. On Phillips street we grav- 
eled where needed from Main street to Chapin's residence. 
The usual spring cleaning of gutters was done, and the catch 
basins have been looked after at all times. 

On Main street we commenced where the State left off, 
raised the grade of the hollow three feet, lowered the ledge 
the same and then macadamized 1100 feet. This gives us an 
unbroken macadam road from the Reading line to Memorial 
Hall at the square. There remains about three hundred 
feet between the square and Pearson street. When this 
strip is done, there will be a continuous macadam road from 
the Lawrence line to the Reading line. Our next macadam 
was on Salem street. We began near Dr. Bricault's and put 
in 2200 feet, finishing at Porter street. This used all our 
stone and we then graveled Whittier street, Chestnut street, 
and part of Bartlet street ; macadamized three hundred 
feet near Cooper's pond on Central street. 

At the hollow on Elm street near Plato Eames' house, 
three hundred feet of macadam was laid. This was paid for 
from the highway appropriation. Near D'Arcy's four hun- 
dred feet of old macadam was re-surfaced making it as good 
as new. 

The road machine was used twenty-two days in different 
parts of the town. Six hundred and fifty-five loads of gravel 
were put on the River road and the cross roads near Edward 
BoutwelPs and Deacon Abbott's. 



53 

The West Parish sidewalk has been completed from 
Buchan's pit to the Williamson place and three hundred feet 
of retaining wall put in, varying from three to fifteen feet in 
depth. This was also railed. Poor street, Frye Village, has 
been graded, also Lowell street, between Edward Burtt's 
house and the Trow place, and between the Gillen place and 
the fountain. 

The sidewalk has been built to grade from Scott's on 
Summer street to Whittier street and the large trees there 
were removed. The sidewalk on Whittier street from 
Summer street to Elm street has been blocked out ready to 
gravel. Other sidewalks have been repaired where needed. 
In Abbott Village, a catch basin was put in. A new foot 
bridge, nine feet wide, was built over the Shawsheen River 
at a cost of nearly $200. Also, one on Stimson's bridge on 
Main street at a cost of $285. Mineral street has been re- 
paired so that the water which caused so much trouble in 
years past, will now find its way to the brook. 

In October, we built one hundred feet of face wall on Pine 
street, at the house of Wendell Jenkins. Mr. Jenkins re- 
ceived no land damages and the selectmen agreed to fix his 
lot satisfactory to him. This was the reason for building the 
wall. There is over $200 left from the Pine street appro- 
priation. I would recommend that this money be re-appro- 
priated for a sidewalk on the west side of Pine street. I in- 
tended to build this, but the selectmen, as well as the people 
on the new street, were anxious to have me commence on 
the new road. Work began there October tenth and the 
street was finished December tenth. Then the ground was 
frozen, the season's work finished, leaving Pine street side- 
walk unbuilt. There is also a balance of over $200 left from 
the appropriation for the new street which I would recom- 
mend that the town re-appropriate. A good deal of the 
material used there was frozen, and as this is liable to settle 
the street will need to be touched up in the spring. 

In Ballardvale, a sidewalk was built between Perry's house 



54 

and Moody's corner. In this walk there were two hundred 
feet of retaining wall and two hundred feet of railing. One 
hundred and thirty feet of rail was built on Chester street. 
The streets of Ballardvale have been kept in repair by the 
town team kept there. 

Perhaps it would not be out of place to say right here that 
this is the second year out of the six years of my service as 
highway surveyor, that I have expended the appropriations 
according to my judgment. The other four, at the annual 
town meeting, it has been designated where the macadam 
money should be expended. I say this to inform the public 
that my hands were tied mainly by vote of the town. This 
year the macadam has been placed as follows : 300fe et on 
Elm street, 2200 feet on Salem street, 1100 feet on Main 
street in the hollow, and 300 feet on Central street near 
Cooper's pond.

CEMETERY COMMITTEE 



In addition to the usual work of keeping the walks and 
drives of the cemetery in good order, much work has, and 
must be done, in grading and laying out the newly plotted 
addition to the cemetery. More than one hundred new lots 
are included in this new plot and they cannot be put in 
proper condition for burial purposes without the expenditure 
of time and money. Your committee therefore ask for a 
larger appropriation than has been granted in former years, 
believing that the same is necessary and must be expended 
for the purposes named. 

We therefore ask for an appropriation of 1500.00 and the 
proceeds from the sale of lots for the ensuing year.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



The growing interest in public grounds has not been 
unappreciated in Andover. The laws of the Commonwealth 
have been changing year by year, ever tending to put larger 
obligations upon cities and towns to care for the public parks 
and other natural beauties in their midst. All this new 
legislation is but an echo of the growing public appreciation 
of the importance of maintaining such places. Ten years 
ago almost no attention was given to this work in Andover. 
The unkept places were just beginning to demand attention, 
and the work of the Village Improvement Society was taking 
its first steps. From the voluntary work of individuals, there 
has passed into public control much work that now demands 
public oversight and the expenditure of public money. 
Carmel Woods and the Common are the central points of 
interest, but the Boulders and several other like small plats 
are calling for care and money. 

The plans of the Commissioners promise results of beauty 
and great public improvement, in the securing of which it is 
realized that slow steps must be taken. The scheme for 
beautifying and rendering useful the great public grounds, 
embracing the Common, the school grounds, and the new 
playstead, is rich in promise. A part of it can be realized 
only through private subscription, but there is much of it 
which the Town must carry out through annual expenditure 
of such an amount as seems wise. 

Your Commissioners believe that at least a thousand 
dollars should be appropriated this year to advance this 
work effectively.

The Park Commissioners make the following report : 
Appropriation, 1904, 1500 00 

Amount left unexpended in 1903, 50 00 

$550 00 
Amount expended, 550 50 

Overdrawn, $ 50 



There was expended in CarmeKWoods $27.40 for repair- 
ing road, raking leaves, picking up dead wood, and carting 
and burning the same. We have paid for shrubs and trees 
$38.30. Edward Adams was paid $145.71 for making 
macadam path. The balance was paid for labor in grading, 
and laying down to grass a part of the Common, cutting 
bushes, carting manure, setting out trees, and caring for the 
grounds and the Boulders a part of the year.

TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



During the past year we have been unable to cover the 
territory as efficiently as expected owing to the appearance 
of the much dreaded browntail moth, which has done so 
much damage to trees in the surrounding towns and which 
required immediate attention. During the early summer 
over twelve miles of roads in the outlying districts were 
made passable and in some instances it was impossible for 
two teams to pass. After the appearance of the browntail 
moth it was deemed advisable to devote the remainder of the 
appropriation, some two hundred dollars ($200.) to the sup- 
pression of the pest and accordingly that was taken up and I 
am pleased to say that more than half of the shade trees in 
the vicinity of one and one-half miles from the centre were 
thoroughly cleaned of the nests and I feel confident that 
two hundred and fifty dollars ($250.) will finish up the work 
this spring and which is available from our special appro- 
priation for that purpose. And I would ask that the owners 
of property and all tenants occupying the same will make a 
careful examination of the trees on such places for the 
browntail moth nests and have them removed at once and in 
that way help to preserve the beauty of our trees and assist 
the tree warden in this work, which must be united if it is to 
be successful. In closing I would ask that the sum of five 
hundred dollars be appropriated that the trimming of trees 
and the outlying districts may be properly attended to.

REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF MILK 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

Gentlemen : I herewith submit my annual report for the 
year ending December 31, 1904. 

There were thirty-three licenses granted for the sale of 
milk. Of these four were issued for the sale of milk in 
stores, one for the sale of skimmed milk, two for the sale of 
cream and twenty-six for peddlers. Under the statutes but 
one license is required for stores so long as the same person 
conducts business in the same place, consequently there was 
nothing collected for the store licenses which were re-issues 
from last year. There have been thirty-five samples of milk 
tested and but one of these was below the standard. Places 
for keeping milk that have been inspected were found to be 
clean and wholesome. The tests of the various samples of 
milk has shown a high standard ; no complaints have been 
received and no prosecutions made. The sum of $14.50 has 
been received for licenses. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE E. HUSSEY, 

Inspector of Milk.

STREET BOUNDS 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

The work on street bounds for the year of 1904 has been 
of a somewhat varied character. The general scheme of 
setting bounds has been to start at Elm Square and radiate 
in all directions doing each year what can be done with the 
appropriation made by the town. The most difficult and 
expensive work lies near the square. 

Street lines are often requested where it is almost as ex- 
pensive to run the lines on a single property as it would be to 
make a complete survey of the whole street, an effort has been 
made to satisfy all land owners making such requests. Lines 
have been given as follows : Lowell road at Wm. M. Woods, 
Shawsheen road at Chas. O'Hara's, Clark road from Chester 
street to Palmer's and Summer street from Scott's to Whittier 
street. Forty-seven bounds have been set as follows : Haver- 
hill street 1, High street 10, Park street 8, Bartlet street 10, 
Pine street 10, Avon street 4 and Union street 4. Surveys 
have been made in addition to the above of Pearson and 
Essex streets and cross sections for the widening of Main 
street from Elm square to Stimson's bridge. 

High street was located to make as little encroachment 
on private property as possible and obtain a highway with a 
minimum width of fifty feet, bounds were set where no en- 
croachment would occur, there are however some points 
which are not yet settled and it will be best to relocate the 
street lines at these points as there is no layout on record. 
It will also be desirable to relocate the lines of Essex and 
Pearson streets before placing bound stones. On the other 
streets mentioned the layout of the streets were quite easily 
located and no trouble occurred. 



113 

The work can be done somewhat cheaper if an appropri- 
ation large enough to give permanent employment to a tran- 
sitman and rodman for the summer season is made. From 
inquiries and requests made by land owners I am led to be- 
lieve that there is a general call for the permanent settlement 
of street lines, I would therefore recommend that the work 
be continued during 1905. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH. 



MEMORIAL HALL 



THIRTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT OF 
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The past year has been much like other years in the quiet 
history of Memorial Hall Library. The circulation has been 
about the same, and as usual, new books have been added, 
some of them because they are of permanent value, and some 
because they represent the current literature which everyone 
wishes to see. If it were possible to secure more of the 
former class it would make the work bestowed upon the se- 
lection of books more satisfactory. 

The property continues to be in fairly good order, but 
some interior repairs will, probably, be necessary during the 
coming year. 

The one new feature, worthy of special notice, is a gift 
from the Trustees of Phillips Academy, of a portion of the in- 
come of a fund established in his life-time, by Lieut. Gover- 
nor Phillips. The object of this fund was said to be to pro- 
vide for the free circulation of religious books among the in- 
habitants of Andover. It is intended that the books pur- 
chased with this gift shall be non-sectarian, but especially 
calculated to promote moral and religious culture. They 
will be distinguished by a book-plate, indicating their in- 
debtedness to the Samuel Phillips Fund. But, with this ex- 
ception, they will not differ from other books in general cir- 
culation. 



115 

A detailed account of the administration of the past year 
will be found in the reports of the Treasurer, the Librarian, 
and the Custodian of the Cornell Art Room.

Report of the Custodian of the Cornell Art Room 

To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library : 

Gentlemen : — The report of the custodian of the Cornell 
Art Collection for the year ending Dec. 31st., 1904, is here- 
with respectfully submitted. 

The Cornell Art Gallery has been open during the year 
on 105 days. The total attendance has been 3856. Of this 
number 995 were adults and 2861 were children. This 
gives an average daily attendance of 36, higher than any 
year since the opening one, when it was 48. 

Since Oct. 15th, following the instructions of the Board, 
children have been admitted on Friday and Saturday after- 
noons only. The result has been an increased attendance of 
the older boys and girls on Saturday evenings, more orderly 
conduct, and apparent enjoyment of the privileges of the 
room. 

The addition to our collection of stereoscopic views, made 
in November, is a source of great interest to the young 
people. The 300 new views are mainly of China, Japan, 
Manchuria and the Philippine Islands, and the timely choice 
of subjects is much appreciated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JULIA B. TWICHELL.

Copy of Mr. Draper's Letter 

Andover, December 12, 1904. 
Trustees or Punchard Free School, 

Gentlemen: — On my eighty- fifth birthday, Dec. 12, 1903, I gave to 
the Town of Andover the sum of one thousand dollars, the income of 
which is to be used in the interest of the Town schools. I had in mind 
also the Punchard Free School as a branch of the Andover schools 
which would share in this work. Accordingly, I now, on my eighty-sixth 
birthday, send you a cheque for one thousand dollars, to be safely invested 
as a permanent fund to be known as the " Draper Fund," the income 
therefrom to be expended for the interests of the school, as deemed best 
by your Board of Trustees. I would suggest as some suitable uses to 
which the income may be applied the following : — 

First : A Warren F. Draper Scholarship, to be awarded to a grad- 
uate (either boy or girl) who shall go on to an institution of learning 
higher in grade than secondary education, or that of the Punchard 
School. 

Second : Prizes in some department designated by the Trustees and 
Teachers. 

Third : The establishment of a departmental library. 

Fourth : The purchase of works of art. 

Fifth : The purchase of scientific apparatus. 

Sixth : The purchase of models for mathematical instruction. The 
income may not be used for the salary of teachers or for deficiency in 
current expenses. 

If your Board, in conference with the Selectmen or the School 
Committee of the Town, should find some object on which it seems best 
to unite the income of these two funds for the general benefit of all the 
schools, you are at liberty to do so. 

Yours respectfully, 

W. F. DRAPER.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works submit their sixth annual 
report, embracing the eighth of the Sewer and the sixteenth 
of the Water Systems for the year ending January 10th, 
1905. 

We also transmit the accompanying report of the Super- 
intendent, conveying in detail the transactions of the year. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

No. connections made in 1904, 29 

No. connections to date, 419 

Sewer bonds issued for construction, $130,000.00 
Bonds redeemed in 1903 and 1904, 40,000.00 

Outstanding, $90,000.00 

Interest on bonds, $4005.00 

Sinking funds, $22,865.86 

About 304 feet of sewer was laid in Abbot street, con- 
necting the two ends and completing this line from School 
to Phillips. The amount of sewage in the Phillips street 
line has increased very materially, and, although the auto- 
matic pump in this street, which forces the sewage to the 
line in School street, is inspected daily it is liable to get 
clogged from obstacles in the sewage, and may sometime 
fail to do its work. In order to avoid, if possible, any trouble 
should this occur, and the receiving tank fill, a pipe has 
been laid to carry off any overflow (should there be any) 
to several hundred feet away, where it can do no harm. It 
is expected that this will remove all trouble from this 
source. The volume of sewage in the whole system has 



more than doubled in the past four years, and another sludge 
bed to care for this increase will be needed this year. The 
filter beds suffered severely from the severe freezing last 
winter, and several hundred feet of the banks were almost 
ruined, but repairs were made as soon as possible, and with 
the favorable summer they are fairly well grassed over and 
are now in very good condition. 

WATER DEPARTMENT 

Received for water rates, $11,818.53 

Maintenance account, $6,378.96 

Services put in, 1904, 26 

Services now in use, 981 

No. of meters, 757 

Bonds issued, $230,000.00 

Bonds outstanding, $153,000.00 

Cost of system, $239,437.54 

No. of hydrants, 221 

No. of drinking fountains, 8 

Sinking funds, $14,067.41 

Interest account, $6,137.50 

Of the $230,000 worth of bonds sold to construct the 
water system, $150,000 worth, the first issue, were payable 
$ 5,000 each year; $50,000 were issued and sold at different 
times, and are secured by sinking funds ; and $30,000, 
issued in 1902, are payable $1,000 each year. 

Less construction work has been done in this department 
than in any year of its existence. 

Last spring an application was received from a prospective 
builder' for a supply of water, with the assurance that if 
furnished a liberal quantity would be required. To do this 
the street line would have to be extended, and considerable 
expense incurred. As we had no funds for this purpose, 
and believing that water should be supplied, a contract was 
entered into whereby the party agreed to pay for the 728 
feet of 8" pipe, the extension required, and all cost for laying 



and other necessary expenses connected therewith. The 
cost for this material and labor was $716.80. The owner- 
ship of this line, like all in the system, is vested in the town, 
but the party is to be allowed 4 per cent, on the above cost. 
Yet, in no case, shall anything be allowed in excess of the 
yearly water rates. This contract may be cancelled by the 
town at any time by paying the $716.80. Should the popu- 
lation and wealth continue to increase in this part of the 
town, a high service may be necessary sometime in the 
future. 

Reference was made last year to the bad condition of the 
coal shed at the pumping station. As only a few repairs 
were made from the maintenance account, it is in no better 
condition at the present time. It seems that something 
should be done to save the building from ruin, and also to 
have some suitable place for the coal. It can hardly be 
expected that one man can tend the pump and do the firing 
unless the coal is near at hand and in good condition to 
handle, which would not be the case if it is exposed to the 
elements, especially in the winter months. 

The amount of water required has been considerably in 
excess of the normal increase that is expected from year to 
year, and may in some measure be attributed to the large 
amount required for town purposes. The introduction of 
new sanitary arrangements in several of the schools have 
required far more than under previous conditions. The 
town is now being supplied in the Osgood, West Centre, 
Bradlee, Indian Ridge, Richardson, John Dove, Stowe, and 
Punchard Schools, Memorial Hall, Annex and Heating Plant 
at John Dove Schools, Town House, two Engine Houses, 
Poor Farm, and for road rollers, road building, drain flush- 
ing, street sprinkling, two sewer pumps, eight fountains, and 
221 hydrants, which is estimated will take 13,700,000 
gallons, or nearly 10 per cent, of water pumped. 

The Water System now comprises 30.5 miles of street 
pipe, 221 hydrants, 14.15 miles service pipe, brick pumping 



6 

station , two boilers, one Deane vertical pump, one Blake 
compound duplex pump, and all necessary appurtenances, 
one coal shed, dwelling house, ice house, repair shop, store 
shed and barn, reservoir and telemeter. 

We would ask an appropriation of $1,200 for repairs on 
coal shed, $1,000 for construction purposes, and $6,600 for 
maintenance.

Total number of meters in use, 757. 

The pipe lines and reservoir are in good condition. The 
reservoir was cleaned and pipe lines thoroughly flushed 
in June. 

The Blake Pump needs some overhauling, portions of the 
piping at the Pumping station need renewing. The front 
and north sides of the coal shed were raised and braced early 
in the spring so that the shed has answered the requirements 
for the year, it will be necessary to repair the west side and 
build a new platform before putting in another supply of coal. 
While it is perfectly feasible to store coal without covering 
under many conditions, it would be extremely difficult for 
one man to run the pumping station and wheel in his coal 
when it was frozen under two or three feet of snow. 

Sewers 

Three hundred and four feet of six-inch sewer was laid on 
Abbot street, completing the sewer from School to Phillips 
street. 

An overflow sewer eight inches in diameter has been put 
in from the pump house on Phillips street to an overflow 
cesspool on land of L. F. Hitchcock, Central street, the total 
length is 1122 feet. 

Thirty applications for house connections were received 
and 29 connections laid during 1904. Total number of 
applications to date, 438. 

Total number of connections to date, 419. 

Length of connections laid during 1904, 1065 feet. 

Total length of connections in service, 26328 feet. 

The severe rain storms of last spring caused a serious 
washout on the high banks of beds Numbers 14 and 15, 
necessitating the replacing of about 1000 cu. yds. fill. The 
system as a whole is in good condition. I would again call 
your attention to the need of another sludge bed. 
Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.

HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover : 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my report on High- 
ways and Bridges. 

We began work on Walnut avenue March 28th, grading 
it beyond James Grosvenor's residence, and then the entire 
length of Maple avenue. Shawsheen road was graded on 
the hill near Peter D. Smith's residence. 

We then macadamized Salem street beginning where we 
left off last year at the Highland road, putting in 1000 feet, 
thus connecting it with South Main street. 

May 8th we commenced on Lowell road in Frye Village 
near the Shawsheen River bridge and graveled as far as 
Warren Mooar's. We repaired the road from West Centre 
fountain to George Phelps'. Four hundred feet of Telford 
road was put in on Poor street, south of Lowell road. We 
graveled Whittier street, Summer street, from Elm street 
nearly to Mr. Welch's house. 

We repaired several hundred feet on Missionary Lane, 
also the same on Highland Road. We graded Chestnut 
street from Main to Bartlet street, also about 200 feet near 
Warren Berry's. We graveled Porter street from the house 
of Henry Flint around the corner near the Weld place as 
far as the gate at Spring Grove cemetery. Also several 
hundred feet near the Stickney place. 

A catch basin was put in on River street, Ballardvale, and 
piped through the company's land to the river, this being 
the only way the street could be drained. Two catch basins 
were put in on Morton street between Main and School 
street and the street and sidewalk were repaired. 

About 700 feet were graveled on Lovejoy road, 1000 feet 
on Greenwood road and several hundred feet on Lowell 
street near the Carruth farm. The ledge was blown out of 



•43 

the Cutler road and the road repaired between Daniel 
Murphy's and Lowell street. Phillips street was repaired 
and also a few hundred feet on Woburn street. 

We raised the sidewalk on Poor street, Frye Village, and 
repaired the one on Lowell road near Mr. Lindsay's. A 
sidewalk was built the entire length of the west side of Pine 
street. The sidewalk on Elm street from Whittier to Sum- 
mer street was taken down to grade. A new sidewalk was 
built on Whittier street from Summer to Elm street. 
Several old walks have been repaired. The gutter in front 
of Wm. Wood's in Frye Village has been paved at his ex- 
pense ; also in front of Village hall in Abbott Village. 

Concrete sidewalks have been laid under betterment act in 
the following places : in Frye Village, 400 feet on Main 
street, north of Harding street in front of Jewett's, the 
gutter paved the same distance, the entire length of Brooks 
street, on School street, from Abbot street to the gate of 
Abbot Academy, on Salem street and on Highland road. 
The concrete sidewalks have been repaired on Elm, Essex, 
Chestnut, Central, Main and Salem streets. A concrete 
crossing was put in on High street and those on Main street 
were repaired. Concrete driveways were laid as follows: 
one on Chestnut street, two on Central street, one on Salem 
street. 

The street from Tyer Rubber Co., to the square has been 
macadamized. Two hundred feet of macadam was laid on 
Main street, below the Railroad bridge. Four hundred feet 
was placed on Essex street near the Railroad station. 
Twenty-two hundred leet was laid on Lowell street from 
Harry Abbott's to the corner at Greenwood road in West 
Parish. 

Gutters and catch basins have been thoroughly cleaned. 
The road machine was not used in the spring on account of 
the dry season. 

Work has been done for the Boston and Maine, for the 



44 

Village Improvement society, gravel sold and the roller let, 
for which the Town Treasurer has received the money. 

The streets in Ballardvale have been kept in good con- 
dition by the Town team kept there. 

The balance of the appropriation left from last year for 
the new street between Elm street and Walnut avenue has 
been expended on the street and sidewalk.

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR 



Our Almshouse is under the efficient management of Mr. 
and Mrs. George L. Burnham, and we feel that the aged and 
infirm who find it necessary to spend their declining years 
there, are fortunate in having so comfortable a home, and 
in being looked after by these most competent and kind 
hearted people. The inmates are all well fed and clothed, 
and have every comfort consistent with their situation. 

Our town's people are invited to visit this home and see 
for themselves how the poor people there are cared for. 

While the inmates of the house are so comfortably pro- 
vided for, the accommodations for the cattle are not up to 
what they should be. If our town intends to carry on the 
farm, a new barn, one that will be a credit to the town, is 
very much needed as it would be a waste of money to at- 
tempt to repair the old one.

TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



During the past year we have trimmed out some fifteen 
miles of road, by removing the bushes in the outlying dis- 
tricts. We were unable to cover the town as efficiently as 
we would liked to have done, as the recent law enacted by 
the Legislature in May, 1905 relative to the destruction of 
the Gypsy and Brown tail Moth, necessitated a larger expen- 
diture of money than was anticipated. However the Brown 
tail Moth nests have been removed from all the trees and 
undergrowth on the highway from boundary to boundary. 
We have now within our town a far worse enemy to fight 
than the Brown tail Moth (namely the Gypsy moth) which 
will require the united effort of every property holder to keep 
in check. It has already been found in quite a number of 
places in Andover, in at least forty places already, which 
have all been carefully looked over and all egg clusters de- 
stroyed. The Gypsy moth question will have to be carried 
on uniformly from now and will require a large expenditure 
of money, as all trees in the immediate vicinity of the in- 
fested tree will have to be burlapped and the undergrowth 
cut out in order that we may keep it in check. In order 
that the voters may have some idea as to how wide a range 
the Gypsy Moth has gained I name the following territory : 
Main street, Chestnut, Elm, High, Morton, Central, Summer, 
Salem, Highland Road, Porter, Poor, Bartlet, Florence, 
Hidden Road, Sunset Rock Road, Shawsheen Road and 
Fosters Pond. And in closing my report I would ask that 
all property owners will make an effort to rid their trees of 
these pests at once. We are already at work on private 
property and intend to clean up all places not already 
cleaned up, at once. And I would ask that the sum of 
twenty-five hundred dollars ($2500) be appropriated that 
the work may be carried on at once and in that way keep 
the Gypsy and Brown tail Moth in check.

Tree Warden. 



REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF MILK 



To ike Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

Gentlemen : I herewith submit my annual report for the 
year ending December 31, 1905. 

There were twenty-eight licenses granted for the sale of 
milk during the year. Four of these were issued for the sale 
of milk in stores, one for the sale of skimmed milk, two for 
the sale of cream and twenty-one pedlers. Samples of milk 
from the various dealers have been tested from time to time 
and have uniformly been above the standard. It is gratify- 
ing to report that there have been few complaints and the 
dealers have always signified a willingness to do their part 
in keeping up the excellent standard of milk that is sold in 
town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE E. HUSSEY, 

Inspector of Milk. 



SPRING GROVE CEMETERY 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their annual 
report for the year 1905 : 

The usual work needed for the care of the cemetery has 
been carefully executed and the new plot graded and made 
ready for interments. During the year the storage building 
in the cemetery was destroyed by an incendiary fire and a 
larger appropriation than usual will be needed to replace the 
same and carry on the work necessary for the care of the 
grounds. It is the desire of the committee that the town 
water might be made available for use in the cemetery, as 
many lot owners have requested that such an arrangement 
might be made. Your committee have also been requested 
to ask that the sidewalk, on the road running from Mr. 
Hemen way's to the cemetery, be placed in proper condition 
for public travel. Some years ago this walk was built, but of 
late has been in a miserable condition and would require but 
a small expenditure to place it in proper condition. 

Your committee request that an appropriation of $1000, 
with the proceeds of the sale of lots, be made for the ensuing 
year.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



The work carried on under the direction of the Park Com- 
missioners during the past year has centered round the 
Common, although some expense has been incurred in the 
care of Carmel Woods and maintenance of " The Boulders." 

At the Common real progress has been made toward the 
completion of the full plan as set forth several years ago by 
the landscape architect. Many more shrubs have been set 
out, new paths constructed and a very ornamental, rough 
stone bridge now connects the two sections of the plot. 

All of the work has been done here in a most thorough 
manner and a continuance of the present policy will in due 
time give to the town a beautiful park. The commissioners 
will recommend within the next year or so the closing of the 
street between the Common and the public school grounds, 
so far as it exists as a public highway, the plan for the com- 
pletion of the full scheme providing for a park avenue which 
will care for all the travel while making the grounds more 
attractive. 

As the plans develop for the lay out of this desirable cen- 
tral park, your commissioners believe that the public becomes 
more anxious for an early completion of the entire work. 
Certainly the appropriation this year should be no less than 
that of last year and our citizens should seriously consider 
the wisdom of an appropriation for the completion of the 
entire work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN N. COLE, 
MYRON E. GUTTERSON, 
T. FRANK PRATT, 

Park Commissioners.

REPORT OF 

TAX COLLECTOR 



To the Board of Assessors : 

With this I hand you my report for the year ending Jan. 
9, 1906. 

While the results attained have not been all that I had 
hoped for, yet some gain has been made and the accounts for 
the past ten years, over which the uncollected taxes ex- 
tended, have been put into better shape, and some errors 
corrected, so that the coming year should show a still greater 
improvement. A careful going over of all these accounts 
for ten years, which seemed necessary before the Collector 
could feel that he was proceeding on a sure footing, has re- 
quired much time and correspondence and delayed some- 
what the actual work of collection. 

The assessors, after consulting the town counsel, abated 
the amounts found in the accompanying report for the years 
1896 to 1901. They comprise almost entirely the poll taxes 
of deceased and poor persons, and of others who have gone 
away, also a small amount of personal property and real es- 
tate, which was not available, the stock or property having 
been sold out or changed hands, and the original owners 
having left town.

THIRTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 
OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The annexed statistical reports of the Treasurer, Li- 
brarian and Custodian of the Cornell Art Gallery, with the 
full list of accessions, will serve to show the varied service 
of the Library during the past year — in the constant use of 
its Reading Room and Reference Room, the enjoyment of 
the Art Collection, both by adults and children, and the cir- 
culation of books through individual drawers, in the public 
schools and by carrier in the outlying districts. 

In addition, the beginning of a special collection of books 
has been made by an appropriation from the Lieut. Gover- 
nor Phillips Fund, established by the founder of Phillips 
Academy in his life-time. As this can, by the terms of the 
gift, be used only for the purchase of books of a religious 
character it has been thought wise to devote it in part to 
works which will be of practical use in the current mission* 
ary and Sunday school studies in the different churches of 
the town. These volumes are distinguished by a special 
book-plate and by "P" in the accompanying accession list, 
and will be so indicated in the bulletins published from time 
to time in the Townsman. They may be found in a special 
case in the Cornell Reference Room, but may be drawn like 
any other books, with the exception of a few works of refer- 
ence. 

The Trustees make grateful record of the continued gen- 
erosity of the Smith family of Andover, by whom in large 
part the. Memorial Hall was originally founded, in the recent 
bequest of Mrs. Helen G. Coburn, of Boston, daughter of the 



107 

late Mr. John Smith. Mrs. Coburn in her lifetime had de- 
frayed the expense of a new printed catalogue, and the 
present addition to the endowment funds, made by her will, 
is twenty-five thousand dollars. It is expected that the in- 
creased income from this source, when received, will provide 
for making needed improvements in the equipment and ad- 
ministration of the Library. 

Mention should be made also of a special private gift 
which has been expended for constructing a toilet room for 
the use of the patrons of the Library, and for the binding of 
sixteen volumes of the Boston Evening Transcript. 

By vote of the Trustees, families not already supplied with 
the printed catalogue may secure a copy by application to 
the Librarian. The patrons of the Library are again re- 
minded of their privilege in suggesting books for purchase, 
as funds may allow, the titles to be placed on slips furnished 
by the Librarian.

Report of the Custodian of the Cornell Art Gallery 

To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library : 

Gentlemen: — The Cornell Art Gallery has been visited 
during the year by 3707 persons ; of this number 1522 were 
adults and 2185 were children, an average daily attendance 
of 36. 

Since the vote of the Trustees to admit children to the 
Gallery only on Friday and Saturday afternoons, the attend- 
ance of adults on Saturday evening has materially increased, 
and there is manifest appreciation of the quiet of the room. 

The only addition to our Collection during the year has 
been by a gift of stereoscopic views from Mrs. EL L. Blake, 
which are much used. Many of the stereographs have been 
loaned to the teachers in the public schools to illustrate the 
study of Geography. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JULIA E. TWICHELL.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works submit their seventh annual 
report, embracing the ninth of the Sewer and the seventeenth 
of the Water Systems for the year ending January 10th, 
1906. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

About 48 feet of pipe on Whittier street is all the addition 
to the sewer this year. No extensive repairs have been re- 
quired and no trouble has developed in the usual working of 
the system. 

The filter beds with the usual repairs that are common 
each spring are in very good condition. Thus far this man- 
ner of disposing of the sewage has been very satisfactory and 
as it now appears it will not be very long before all inland 
cities and towns will have to adopt some process of Alteration 
of the sewage or dispose of it by some other method than 
running it directly to some flowing stream to be carried 
away and distributed along the banks. Should this be the 
case, this town will be all right without any change or extra 
expense. 

The bonded debt is now $70,000 and the sinking fund 
$3,212.33 leaving a net bonded debt of $66,787.67. Since 
the first year the town has not made any appropriation di- 
rectly for either the sinking fund or for maintenance, or in- 
terest, all of these thus far coming from sewer assessments. 
But as the sinking fund is now very small, it having been 
required from time to time to redeem bonds as they matured, 
it will be necessary for the town for several years to come, 
to appropriate money for this fund as many of the bonds 



mature in a few years and the receipts from assessments will 
not be sufficient for their redemption. Enough, however, 
will be received for all ordinary expenses, for a few years 
more.

The expenses of maintenance for 1905 were divided as 
follows : 



Pumping station, 


$3426.99 


Office expenses, 


1337.96 


Care of teams, reading meters, repairs and general 




maintenance, 


1803.51 


Repairs on coal shed, 


660.36 




$7228.82 



Gallons of water pumped, 164,150,878. 

Cost per million gallons figured on pumping expenses, $20.87. 

Cost per million gallons figured on total maintenance, $44.03. 

Receipts from water rates, $12,409.79. 

Received per million gallons pumped, $75.60. 

Additions to street lines have been made on Pine, Corbett 
and Reservation streets. 

The receipts from water rates show a steady increase. 
All water rates due to October 1st, 1905 have been collected. 

The water has been exceptionally good which is very grati- 
fying as during the past year there has been more than usual 
trouble with the water in the different systems in the state. 



A number of applications for a supply of water have been 
received which if their requests are granted will necessitate 
the laying of considerable street pipe. 

While this Board has always favored granting to the citi- 
zens all privileges consistent with the. welfare of the system 
and the town, it is a question whether it is good policy for 
the town to lay pipe on streets where there is little or no 
prospects of the line ever being utilized to any extent beyond 
what is visible at the time. Whenever a special line of pipe 
is laid and only 4 per cent, collected on the cost of the line 
the town receives nothing whatever for the water furnished, 
and all expenses for pumping the extra water and the care 
and maintenance of the system with this extra expense must 
of necessity come from some other source. 

The repairs on the coal shed at the station have been of a 
permanent nature, as few as possible and the whole building 
is now in many respects in much better condition than 
formerly. 

The station has had no repairs and none were needed. 
The grounds about the station are not in harmony with the 
building, the amount of money available for several years 
has not justified the Board in expending much to improve 
the surroundings. 

Sometime it is hoped that funds will be provided and the 
grounds improved and made more attractive. 

A new boiler will be required to replace the old one which 
has outlived its usefulness, and is now or soon will be unsafe 
for the duty required. 

George E. Hussey who has very acceptably filled the po- 
sition of clerk and collector for the past ten years, resigned 
at the close of the year and Frank L. Cole was elected to the 
position. 

Yery respectfully, 

JOHN L. SMITH ^

A stand pipe for street sprinkling was erected at the corner 
of Elm and Whittier streets. 

Thirty-six meters were set and two discontinued during 
the year. 

Total number of meters in use, 791. 

The rear wall of the coal shed has been rebuilt with heavy 
stone work, the ground filled to a level with the door sills 
and the floor concreted. A covered run has been built be- 
tween the coal shed and boiler room. 

On the inspection of No. 2 boiler in October, the Hartford 
Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Co., notified us that 
it would be better to replace this boiler with a new one 
rather than make the expensive repairs which would be re- 
quired to make the boiler reasonably safe at the pressure 
used. 

Sewers 

The only common sewer laid during 1905 was 48 feet on 
Whittier street. 

Twenty-seven applications for house connections were re- 
ceived and twenty-eight connections laid during 1905. 

Total number of applications to date, 465. 

Total number of connections in service, 447. 

Length of connections laid during 1905, 1727 feet. 

Total length of connections in service, 28055. 

Storm sewers were laid for the Street department on River 
and Morton streets, and a private sewer was laid for Smith 
& Dove Mfg. Co. 

Foundations and arch for small bridge was also built by 
this department for the Park Commissioners. 

The operation of the sewer system has been very satisfac- 
tory, one stoppage has occurred on a house connection. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.

HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town ofAndover : 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my eighth annual 
report on Highways and Bridges. 

We commenced work January 15, and worked when the 
weather was suitable. Graded Lewis street, built sidewalks 
on each side, taking the ashes for the foundation from the 
Tyer Rubber Company, covering it with screened gravel. Re- 
pairs were made on Summer, School, Chestnut, Bartlet and 
Phillips streets, also the entire length of Abbot street. We 
gravelled Harding street. 

Early in May we repaired the old macadam on Stevens 
street with broken stone. When this was completed, we 
commenced to macadamize High street, laying 1800 feet and 
later finished it as far as Harding street. The heavy rains of 
the first three months did more damage than those of any 
other season during my fourteen years of service. We re- 
paired the Abbott Village hill, also the Main street, Walnut 
avenue and Phillips street hills, the latter especially had to 
be repaired nearly the whole length four different times. 

The Frye Village sidewalk was left in my hands and we 
built it from Manders to Main street. From Railroad bridge 
to Burnham road, Haverhill street was repaired where 
needed. 

Chandler's hill for about 400 feet has been macadamized. 
About 1800 feet were macadamized on Porter road, past 
Selectman S. H. Bailey's. Here the stones were furnished 
by Mr. Bailey free of charge. We have left the stone crusher 
here as another thousand feet should be added the coming 
year. 

The road machine was used thirty-three days in different 
parts of the town repairing nearly a mile each day. A catch 



47 

basin has been put in under both tracks emptying into 
Rogers brook on Main street. This was paid for by the 
electric road. A vitrified brick crossing has been built on 
Main street, from Campion's to Yalpey's store. 

Concrete walks have been laid from Locke street to Morton 
street on the east side of School street, on south side of 
Morton street from School street to Main street, and on the 
west side of School street from the office of the Phillips 
Academy to Phillips street, under the betterment act. A 
crossing has been put in across Whittier street on Chestnut 
street. The crossing from Campion's to Memorial Hall and 
the concrete gutter near Campion's have been repaired. 
There was money appropriated to repair other old concrete 
walks but the concreters disappointed me and I hired others 
to do the work but the ground froze earlier than usual so 
this work was not completed. 

Gutters were cleaned and stones were raked as usual. The 
paved gutters on Essex street have been repaired, also the 
one on Main street, from Morton street to School street. 
Two hundred feet of edgestones have been set on Essex 
street in front of the Catholic church, the church people pay- 
ing for the stones. Three new culverts have been laid with 
ten inch pipe, two on Haggetts Pond road and one on High

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR 



Our Almshouse is still under the management of Mr. and 
Mrs. George L. Burnham, and we feel that their manage- 
ment of the home and its inmates is all that could be asked 
for. The inmates are carefully looked after and well fed 
and clothed, and have everything done for them that people 
in their situation could ask for. 

We would be pleased to have our townspeople visit this 
home, and see for themselves what is being done for the un- 
fortunate poor of our town 

To make the establishment complete, a new barn is very 
much needed. While the house has every convenience, the 
barn is certainly insufficient for the needs of the farm, be- 
sides being very much out of repair, and it would be a waste 
of money to attempt to repair it.

TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



During the past year we are pleased to note the decrease 
of the Brown-tail Moth pest which threatened to destroy the 
trees of the town and I am pleased to say the property 
owners have been both willing and ready to assist us in the 
destruction of this pest. During the past year we have made 
a careful inspection of all property in the residential part of 
the town for the Gypsy moth and I am sorry to say that this 
is fast increasing in the town, and in order to keep them in 
check we shall have to have the united support of all prop- 
erty owners to subdue the pest as this is even worse than the 
dreaded Brown-tail Moth. We have up to the present time 
found the Gypsy Moth in 468 (four hundred and sixty-eight) 
places, and have found and treated over 7000 nests scattered 
all over the town from the North Reading line to Lawrence 
and from North Wilmington line to North Andover line. In 
scouting the places where the Gypsy Moth has been found 
we have endeavored to show the property owner the nests and 
also how to treat them as we find lots of people who do not 
yet know what they are. We have had the underbrush cut 
in the worst infested districts on the roadside some fifteen 
miles of road having been covered, and this will be burnt up 
as earlv as possible this spring. The work on the Brown- 
tail Moth will be finished on the highway by March 1st and 
about half of the private property has been cleaned up. We 
have made an inspection of some of the wood lots in the 
town on suggestion of the State superintendent and have 
found some very large colonies — in three places in particular. 
It is our intention to make a scout of more of the woodlots 
as soon as the residences are cleaned up and I would ask 
that a sum not less than $2500.00 be appropriated, that this 



81 

work of eradicating the pest may be carried on, and 
I would ask that the owners of orchards either cut down or 
cement up all hollow trees, as they are capital places for the 
Gypsy moth to harbor in. 

J. H. PLAYDON, 

Tree Warden. 



REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF MILK 



To ike Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

Gentlemen : I herewith submit my annual report for the 
year ending 1906. 

There were thirty-one licenses granted for the sale of milk 
during the year. Four of these were for stores, two for the 
sale of cream, one for the sale of skimmed milk, and twenty- 
four peddlers. 

During the year, various changes have been made, some 
going out of business and others selling out. The general 
tendency is to keep the milk up to the highest standard. I 
have taken samples from time to time and in no case was 
the milk below. It is gratifying to report that there have 
been few complaints and the dealers have alwas signified a 
willingness to do their part in keeping up the excellent 
standard of milk that is sold in town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM C. CROWLEY, 

Inspector of Milk. 



PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



The year's progress upon the "Common" makes up 
practically all of the work of the Park Commissioners for the 
past year. One more of the several features designed in the 
original plan, has been added in shape of the pond in the 
centre of the field, and a very satisfactory relevelling of a 
section of the area on the east side of the brook, has also 
been done. 

With an appropriation of $1,000.00 this year, your com- 
missioners will hope to do the important work of rebuilding 
the stone work and culvert along by the brook on the upper 
corner and make a still further progress upon the grading. 
It is also planned to begin the practical use of the park as a 
public resort by placing seats in the grove and along the 
walks. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN N. COLE, 
MYRON E. GUTTERSON, 
T. FRANK PRATT, 

Park Commissioners. 



SPRING GROVE CEMETERY 



The Spring Grove Cemetery Committee herewith submit 
their annual report for the year 1906 : 

In addition to the usual work necessary for the care of the 
Cemetery grounds, a new tool and storage house has been 
erected during the past year and the cemetery is now in a 
condition that reflects credit to the town for a repository for 
the dead. The location is one of the most beautiful in the 
town, sloping toward the west and with its sunny slope on a 
gravelly soil is a perfect location for the purposes of burial. 
Your committee have in contemplation plans for the orna- 
mentation of the eastern half of the grounds and the erection 
of a rustic stone bridge crossing the old railroad and con- 
necting the eastern and western part of the cemetery. It is 
also thought best that an increased price for the lots in the 
eastern location should be made in order that perpetual care 
may be secured for lots in that section. A cemetery should 
be made attractive and everything done to free the mind 
from a sorrowful feeling when viewing the resting place of 
those who have passed to the other shore. Nothing tends to 
cause a greater feeling of sorrow than a burial ground filled 
with weeds and brambles, with sunken graves, and 
markers tumbling down. Your committee are happy to say 
that, with few exceptions, owners of lots in our cemetery, 
carefully maintain the neatness of their lots.

MEMORIAL HALL LIBRARY 



THIRTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT OF 
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The past year has been one of changes in the adminis- 
tration of the library. The generous bequest of Mrs. Helen 
G. (Smith) Coburn, mentioned in the last annual report, has 
been received, and has made possible the beginning of a 
more modern equipment, the urgent need of which has long 
been felt. Mr. Ballard Holt, the only librarian of Memorial 
Hall since it was opened, May 1, 1873, has resigned his 
office, after a most faithful service of a full generation. He 
was succeeded, Sept. 1, 1906, by Miss Edna A. Brown of 
Providence, R. I., a lady of thorough education in library 
schools, and of wide experience in organizing and conduct- 
ing public libraries. 

Following her suggestions, and at the cost of several hun- 
dred dollars, various improvements have been already made, 
notably, the inauguration of the modern loan system with a 
new delivery counter ; the taking away of the glass partitions, 
so as to make the shelves of the fiction department accessible 
to readers ; the removal of covers from books (this only in 
part, as yet), giving them a much more attractive appear- 
ance ; the placing of new books in a separate case in the 
reading room, for the ready inspection of patrons ; and the 
erection of special shelves for the children, where they can 
themselves select, under the advice of the librarian, their 
own books and examine them at an adjacent table — until 
low, round tables, with small chairs, can be procured for 
them. The arrangement of newspapers and magazines on 
racks economizes the space in the reading room, and pro- 
motes the convenience of the readers. 

The afternoon hours have been increased, the library now 



118 

being open continuously from three to nine o'clock, p. m. 
Miss Twichell, who has been from the beginning the cus- 
todian of the Cornell Art Gallery, has been engaged as li- 
brarian's assistant and Miss Abbie S. Davis appointed to 
take her place in the care of the Arc Collection. The ser- 
vices of Mr. Holt are still retained as the caretaker of the 
library. 

That these improvements are thoroughly appreciated is 
shown by the number frequenting the library — children as 
well as adults — and the circulation of books, both of which 
are steadily increasing. It is proposed to introduce other 
methods and equipments, sure to contribute still further to 
the usefulness of the library, whenever its resources in room 
and funds will permit. 

In this connection grateful acknowledgement is made of 
timely gifts of twenty-five dollars from Professor John 
Phelps Taylor, and thirty dollars from the Andover Village 
Improvement Society, for the purchase of children's books, 
and of twelve dollars from the same society for periodicals 
pertaining to art and nature studies. A pair of costly 
marble vases, brought from Italy by the late Mrs. Coburn, has 
been given to the Memorial Hall by Mrs. Joseph W. Smith 
and a bust of Robert Burns been deposited by the Burns 
Club. 

In addition to the continued income from the "Lieut. 
Governor Phillips Fund," to be spent for religious books — 
which as seen in the accompanying accession list has added 
many volumes of practical value in the Sunday school and 
missionary studies of the churches of the town, as well as 
other standard works — the library has just received from the 
Trustees of Phillips Academy the sum of practically two 
thousand dollars. This is the share of the accrued income 
of another donation made by the founder of Phillips 
Academy in 1802 for the benefit of the female teachers 
of the town, which now by a decree of the Supreme 
Judicial Court of Massachusetts (on application of the 



119 

Academy) has come to the trustees of this library. The 
interest of this amount, increased by a similar share of 
the current annual income of the same donation, is to 
be " specially devoted to the purchase of such reference 
books and of such current educational periodicals and publi- 
cations as may tend to render the female teachers in the 
public schools of Andover better qualified for the discharge 
of their delicate and important trust." 

Thus do the benefactors of a century ago unite with those 
of a generation ago and of the present time in promoting the 
educational and moral welfare of the men, women and chil- 
dren of Andover — and may others be moved to join their 
company !

Report of the Custodian of the Cornell Art Gallery 

To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library : 
Gentlemen: — The Cornell Art Gallery has been visited 

during the year by 3277 persons ; of this number 955 were 

adults and 2322 were children, an average daily attendance 

of 32. 

Catalogues in book form have been dispensed with, their 

place being taken by lists of the pictures mounted on stiff 



121 

cardboard, thereby making a most convenient and durable 
form of catalogue. 

Many who have come for the first time have been sur- 
prised and delighted at the fine collection, and have ex- 
pressed much regret over their tardy appreciation. It is 
most earnestly hoped that many more will avail themselves 
of the opportunity to study so many masterpieces. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ABBIE S. DAVIS.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of the Town of Andover: 

Your Board of Public Works submit their eighth annual 
report, embracing the tenth of the Sewer and the eighteenth 
of the Water Systems, for the year ending January 15th, 
1907. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

The condition of the sewer system is excellent. There 
has been no trouble of any consequence during the year, and 
no complaints have been received. 

It will be necessary to build a new sludge bed in the 
Spring to take care of the increasing flow of sewerage matter. 
There are at present two beds, but as these are now taxed to 
their full capacity, a third one is necessary. 

The bonded debt is now $70,000 and the sinking fund is 
18805.22, leaving a net bonded debt of $61,194.18. No 
bonds matured during the year. An appropriation of 
$5000 for the sinking fund is asked to redeem bonds in 1908. 

The cost of maintenance for the past year was $1286.34. 
For the coming year an appropriation of $1300 is asked. 

WATER DEPARTMENT 

The Water system is in a satisfactory condition. The 
pumping station and water pipes are all in good order, and 
no expenditure is needed except for the ordinary repairs. 

A new boiler has been installed to take the place of the 
No. 2 boiler in use since 1892. The steam piping in the 
boiler room has been renewed, and is capable of carrying a 
working pressure of 200 pounds. 



The water has been examined monthly by the State Board 
of Health, and shows its usual high quality. 

A six inch water main has been laid on Wolcott Ave., 432 
feet in length. Total length of water mains now in the sys- 
tem is 31.031 miles. There have been twenty-three appli- 
cations for service, and these have been accepted and the 
pipes laid. Total of services now in use is 1036, of which 
813 are metered. 

The receipts from water rates show a continued increase 
and were 113,516.47, a gain of $1,106.68 over last year. 
All bills have been collected up to October 1, 1906. 

The expense of maintenance is divided as follows: 



Pumping station, 

Office expenses, 

Care of teams, reading meters, repairs and general 

maintenance, 
New boiler and charges, 


$3054.09 
1072.22 

1894.65 
2100.43 




$8121.39 



Gallons of water pumped, 176,717,519. 

Cost per million gallons figured on pumping expenses, $17.29. 
Cost per million gallons figured on total maintenance, $45.39. 
Receipts per million gallons, $76.48. 

The bonded debt is now $141,000.00 of which $50,000.00 
is redeemable by sinking funds which now amount to 
$16,713.39. The balance of the bonded debt is paid by annual 
appropriation by the Town. 

An appropriation of 17900.00 is asked for the expense of 
maintenance for 1907. The increase is largely due to the 
extra cost of supplying water to the City of Lawrence. 

In accordance with the vote of the Town, January 7, 1907, 
a connection with the water mains of the City of Lawrenee 
was completed January 10th, and the water turned on Jan- 
uary 11th. Up to the present time there has been no diffi- 
culty experienced, nor is any feared. No appreciable effect 
on the supply at the Pond is noticeable. We are supplying 



6 

approximately 500,000 gallons a day. We attach to this re- 
port the agreement made between the inhabitants of And- 
over and the City of Lawrence by their respective agents. 

Yery respectfully, 

FELIX G. HAYNES ^

THIS AGREEMENT 

Made this tenth day of January, 1907, by and between 
the Inhabitants of Andover, Mass., hereinafter referred to as 
the Town acting by its Board of Public Works hereto author- 
ized and instructed by a vote of said Inhabitants passed at a 
legal meeting held on the seventh day of January, 1907, and 
the City of Lawrence, Mass., acting herein by John P. Kane 
its Mayor by virtue of a resolution of its Board of Aldermen 
passed January 9, 1907. 

WITNESSETH: — 

That the Town of Andover hereby grants to the City of 
Lawrence permission to connect its public water supply sys- 
tem with the water supply system of said Town of Andover 
at a point on Union Street in said Town by means of a six 
inch pipe as is now being done and is substantially com- 
pleted at the time of signing of this agreement. 

When said connection has been made and furnished with 
a proper meter, check valve, stop valve and appliances, all 
to be within the actual territory or limits of said Town, to be 
made, set and connected in all respects to the satisfaction of 
John E. Smith, superintendent of Public Works of said 
Town of Andover, and approved by him in writing, the said 
Town of Andover will open said valves and deliver to the 



connecting pipe of said City of Lawrence a quantity of water 
not exceeding one half million gallons per day if said City 
shall require the same until April thirtieth, 1907. 

But this undertaking on part of said Town shall be sub- 
ject to the discretion of its said Board of Public Works, 
which may at any and all times and without any prior notice 
in the exercise of its discretion cut off said supply and break 
said conncection or may diminish the quantity of water so 
to be furnished as it may deem best for the interest of the 
said Town. 

And the said City of Lawrence in consideration hereof 
hereby agrees to pay to the Town of Andover for all water 
so delivered one hundred six dollars and twenty cents for the 
first million gallons, and at the rate of seven cents per thou- 
sand gallons for all in excess of said million gallons, all as 
shown by said meter, payment to be made on or before the 
fifteenth day of each calendar month for all water so deliv- 
ered in the preceeding month. 

And said City of Lawrence further agrees to pay all ex- 
pense incurred or accruing in respect of the matters of this 
agreement, including laying pipes, furnishing and setting 
meters, valves, making connections, and all other work and 
expense whatsoever leading to this connection and to the dis- 
continuance of the same. 

And said City further agrees that it will hold and save 
harmless and indemnified the said Town from all suits and 
claims in any way growing out of making and maintaining 
said connection and will reimburse said Town for any and all 
expense, if any, which it may incur by damage to its own 
pipes, machinery and fixtures arising from the greatly in- 
creased burden put upon them by reason of this undertaking. 

And said Town shall have absolute control of all said con- 
nection, valves, meter, and other appliances, and the agents 
and servants of said City shall not have any right whatso- 
ever to operate or meddle with the same. 

In Witness Whereof the said Town of Andover by its 



8 

Board of Public Works and the City of Lawrence by John P. 
Kane, its Mayor, hereto set their several hands the day and 
year above written.

Total number of applications to date, 482. 

Total number of connections in service, 463. 

Length of connections laid during 1906, 1193 feet. 

Total length of connections in service, 29248. 

There have been three stoppages in street sewers and one 
in a house connection during the year. The filter beds are 
in good condition and ample in area to dispose of the present 
flow of sewage, it is doubtful however if we can go through 
another year without an addition to the sludge beds. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR 



Since 1893, the Town of Andover has been most fortunate 
in having as Superintendent and Matron at the Town farm, Mr. 
and Mrs. George L. Burnham, and during this long period, they 
have not only performed their duties in a manner most satis- 
factory to the town, but have endeared themselves to the inmates, 
by their ever kind and painstaking treatment of those entrusted 
to their care. Especially is this true of our Matron, Mrs. Burn- 
ham and whoever succeeds to her place will find she has left a 
standard hard to equal, and we know we voice the sentiment of 
the whole town when we wish them God Speed in their new 
home in North Andover where they intend to go the first of 
April next.

TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



In submitting my annual report to the voters of the town, I 
wish to thank the property owners for their assistance and co- 
operation in the destruction of the eggs, pupa and nests of the 
Gypsy and Browntail moths as by the united efforts, I am pleased 
to report a large decrease in the Browntail Moths, and I would 
ask that all tenants and property owners unite with us in des- 
troying the Gypsy Moths. The expense of this work can be 
greatly reduced by the tenants or property owners cutting down 
all worthless trees and by properly trimming all fruit trees and 
cementing or tinpatching the holes in the trees, as they are capital 
places for Gypsy Moths to deposit their eggs. During the past 
year, we have cut out about 25 miles of roadway, and 
burnt up the brush, and in order that the work may be 
carried on successfully it will be necessary to cut out the 
bushes on the main thoroughfares between the surrounding 
town and cities. I am pleased to note that some of the worst 
colonies of Gypsy Moths have been almost entirely wiped out 
during the past summer. These colonies were bordering on some 
of our most valuable wood lots. While the general condition of 
our town is more infested than last year, I am pleased to note 
that there is a decrease of about 70 per cent, in the number of 
Egg clusters found in the residental section. It is desirous to make 
a general scout of the wood lots in the Western part of the town 
in the early spring as Gypsy moths have been found in large 
numbers in some of the outlying districts in West Parish. This 
system has been approved by the State Department in order to pro- 
tect our wood lots and know the general condition of the town, 
and I would ask that the sum of $3000 00 (Three Thousand 



80 

Dollars,) be appropriated that the work may be carried on, as 
we have two large wood lots which have to be taken care of at 
once if the trees are to be saved, and we find from past exper- 
ience that a dollar well expended in the start is worth $100 oo 
(One hundred Dollars,) later on. 

Respectfully, 

JOHN H. PLAYDON, 

Tree Warden. 



REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF MILK 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

Gentlemen : There has been issued for the sale of milk and 
Cream at retail this year, 26 licenses to peddlers, 6 v to the stores 
for the sale of milk, and 5 to stores for the sale of cream making 
a total of 37. 

Samples have been taken from the stores and wagons all of 
which have been tested for the per cent, of Butter fats and some 
for the more common preservatives. 

Only one sample was below the standard and two were very 
close to the line, with these exceptions the milk was of very 
good quality, well handled and free from dirt. 

Special attention has been paid to the condition of the cans and 
wagons and found them excellent, while the cans and refrigera- 
tors in the stores were in good condition. 

All the dealers seem to be anxious to put out milk of highest 
standard and several have brought in samples from time to time 
to be tested. 

Have made a few preliminary tests on samples of butter for 
oleomargarine and renovated butter and found them satisfactory. 

Vinegar, I could not test without costly apparatus, but the State 
Board of Health looks out for it. 

Three dealers have given up their routes and two have sold out 
the past year. 

Under the law passed last year, a legal standard has been es- 
tablished for cream and all dealers must take out licenses for 
sale of same. 

Respectfully submitted, 
FRANKLIN H. STACEY, Ph. C, 

Inspector of Milk. 



SPRING GROVE CEMETERY 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their annual report 
for the year 1907 : 

The cemetery has been cared for in the usual manner and but 
little new work has been performed. Flower beds have been laid 
out and planted, shrubbery has been planted and vacant plots 
graded and made attractive. The ravine in the south part of the 
cemetery should be covered and much filling done in order that 
the same may be used for cemetery purposes. This will necess- 
itate quite a considerable expense, but, in the opinion of your com- 
mittee it is prudent so to do. Your committee therefore ask that 
an appropriation of $700.00 and the proceeds from the sale of lots, 
be made for the ensuing year.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



The work of this department during the past year has been de- 
voted mainly to a continued development of the Common. With 
the exception of a small portion, the land is now brought to 
grade, and with a continuation of the policy of a small appropria- 
tion for another year or two, such as has been received during 
the past four years, the grading, shaping and making of walks 
will be practically completed. A temporary dam was constructed 
to hold the small pond which was made during the past year and 
the effect would seem to justify making this a permanent feature 
of the plat. Retaining walls along the brook and grading in the 
grove will be the first work to be taken up in the coming year, 
and when completed an attractive resting place will be provided 
for summer saunterers. The Commission has also done some 
work on the Carmel woods and has continued to maintain the 
various reservations within its care so that they have been attrac- 
tive additions to the town's beauty. 

We recommend the appropriation of $1000.00 for the coming 
year to continue the work in accordance with the original plan.

MEMORIAL HALL LIBRARY 



THIRTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE 
BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



In presenting the annual report of the Trustees for 1907 there 
seems to be very little to add to the comprehensive report of the 
Librarian, which we cordially commend to your attention. 

A large and increasing number of our townspeople have en- 
joyed the benefits of the changes therein mentioned. Probably 
few realize that they are indebted to Mrs. Coburn's legacy, and 
to the generosity of her brother, our late President, Joseph W. 
Smith, Esq., for these advances along modern lines of library 
work. Partially offsetting this additional income for the support 
of the library, the Town has paid this year only 4 per cent interest 
on the Memorial Hall note of $20000.00 in place of the 6 per 
cent which it has heretofore paid, thus making our total income 
$400.00 less than we supposed we should have to carry on the 
work under the new conditions. 

To provide for this, and also for the purchase of additional 
books as recommended in the Librarian's report we have asked 
the Town for an appropriation of $500.00. 

Mention has already been made of the death of our late Pres- 
ident, Joseph W. Smith, Esq. The following minute has been 
spread upon our records : — 

"Mr. Joseph W. Smith, our beloved President having passed 
away on November 14th, we desire to place on record our warm 
appreciation of the long and faithful service rendered by him to 
the Memorial Hall Library. 

"It was to him that his honored father, Mr. John Smith, wrote 
in 1870 the letter from Dresden proposing the project of a "Mem- 
orial Hall" for Andover, which should also be a public library and 
reading room, and pledging a large sum toward carrying it out — 
a fund to which Mr. Smith himself afterward subscribed liberally. 
He was elected by the town one of the original trustees, was 



113 

chosen by the Board, March 30, 1872, its first president, and by 
successive annual re-elections has continued to hold the office, con- 
tributing not only his genial presence at our meetings but his 
counsel and help during all these thirty-five years. Never has his 
interest seemed greater than in these last two years of his feeble- 
ness when, though unable to meet with us in person, he has made 
at various times generous provision for special needs, as for the 
binding of newspaper files containing the current history of the 
civil war, and for refurnishing and decorating the library, thus 
adding greatly to its attractiveness, as well as to the convenience 
of its patrons. 

"We mourn that we shall see his face and hear his cheery voice 
in our meetings no more, but rejoice that his life was spared to 
witness the constantly increasing usefulness and helpfulness to 
the whole community of the institution whose interests lay so 
near his heart."

REPORT OF LIBRARIAN 



To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library. 

Gentlemen: — I herewith submit the annual report of the library 
for the year ending December 31, 1907. 

With the first of January a new registration was begun and a new 
loan sytem installed, a simple system which has worked perfectly and 
to the apparent satisfaction of the public as well as the library force. 
All children over ten years of age were allowed to have cards, their 
application blanks being indorsed by both teacher and parent. In 
the case of some exceptionally bright children under ten, a card has 
been granted upon a written request from the teacher. All the chil- 
dren's books were put upon open shelves in the main reading room, 
and the children were allowed free access to them, a privilege which 
has been greatly appreciated. At the same time all the shelves were 
opened to adult visitors, with a consequent increase in the amount of 
non-fiction issued for home use. The new books have been placed in 
an open case available for examination, while books of special tem- 
porary interest have been arranged in small cases under bulletin 
boards calling attention to them. 

During the summer the privilege of keeping for several weeks, 
books not in especial demand, was granted, and an extra card for non- 
fiction, issued to all grown people upon request. The latter privilege 
was afterwards made a permanent one, and has been extended to the 
High School scholars. 

Through the generosity of the late president of the Board of 
Trustees, Joseph W. Smith, the library interior was repainted, the 
woodwork refinished, a new system of lighting installed, a floor cov- 
ering laid, and the old worn furniture replaced by modern chairs and 
tables; completely transforming the reading room. It is doubtful if 
any one of the many benefactions of Mr. Smith as regards the Memo- 
rial Hall, has ever been more appreciated than this gift to the people 
of Andover. There have been a number of other gifts to the library; 
an addition, from the Trustees of Phillips Academy, to the Phillips 
fund for the purchase of religious and ethical books; and, under the 
will of Samuel Phillips, the gift of another fund, the income of which 
is to be expended for educational works for the benefit of the female 
teachers of Andover. Mrs. Joseph W. Smith has presented to the 
library, a valuable collection of large plates, entitled "Beauties and 
Curiositites of Engraving". There have also been several anony- 
mous gifts of money for the purchase of children's books, and dona- 



117 

tions of books and pamphlets from different sources as may be seen 
in the list of gifts to the library. 

The work with the schools has been most encouraging, the super- 
intendent and teachers co-operating most cordially with the library 
in efforts to teach the children the true use of books. The reference use 
has greatly increased, the resources of the library as a storehouse of 
information being recognized, not only by the schools, but by the 
clubs and the churches. Special efforts were made to provide for 
the winter's work of the different departments of the Tuesday and 
November Clubs, reading lists being compiled, and additional books 
purchased for their use. The needs of Sunday school teachers have 
also been considered, and the Phillips fund makes it possible to pro- 
vide for them with unusual generosity. At the beginning of the 
winter, a list of library books helpful for church and Sunday school 
workers, was compiled, and a copy given to each church. During 
the year, a number of special lists and bulletins have been posted at 
intervals upon the bulletin boards. Special shelves are set apart for 
different teachers who may there reserve books for the use of their 
classes. The purchase, in the fall, of duplicate copies of the required 
reading for the Punchard school, was one of the most appreciated 
decisions of the board. 

The work of reorganization has been carried on throughout the 
year, progressing steadily, though slowly, since the greatly increased 
use of the library leaves only mornings available for this work. 
Practically all the books on the lower floor of the library are now 
equipped for the new loan system. No systematic revision of the 
card catalogue has as yet been attempted. Catalogues of any de- 
scription are of less importance when the shelves of a library are open, 
since people find it pleasanter and more satisfactory to examine the 
books, or to ask the librarian, than to depend upon mechanical lists. 
Eventually the catalogue will be put into shape. 

The library has recently entered into communication with the 
Woman's Education Association of Boston, and has had from them, 
one travelling library on Venice, with its accompanying photographs. 
The association owns a number of these collections, which it lends 
to any Massachusetts library upon payment of freight charges in one 
direction. In this way, a library to a great extent, may temporarily 
increase its resources upon any special subject. 

During November and December, Miss Twichell has told Thanks- 
giving and Christmas stories to the children. They have come in 
different groups of ten each, the groups composed of boys and girls 
about the same age. This story hour has been very successful, and 
has given the children great pleasure, as well as inspiration to read 
for themselves. An abridged form of Dickens' Christmas Carol was 
read one evening in Christmas week to a number of the older boys 



118 

who have left school. It is hoped to continue this story-telling 
throughout the winter. The only place which can be used for it is 
the reference room, and there is always the chance of its being needed 
for its original purpose while stories are being told. One of the 
greatest needs of the library is a separate room for the children, 
and it is to be hoped that before many years, since so much has 
already been done by private benefactors, this urgent need may be 
recognized by the town. 

No mention is made in the list of gifts to the library of the many 
flowers which have been brought during the year, but they have added 
greatly to the attractiveness of the reading room, and have given 
pleasure to many people. All the plants which are now in the library, 
are either gifts or loans. 

From the appended statistics may be seen the increased use 
of the library during the past year. Its patrons are appreciative of 
the open shelves, of the new books, and of Mr. Smith's generosity 
in making the reading room so attractive. The registration shows a 
good proportion of the town's population. The increase in circulation, 
10,767 more books than were issued in 1906, is in itself, indisputable 
testimony as to the place that the library is taking in the community. 
This increased use means larger binding bills, more frequent replace- 
ment of books, and larger book bills, for the people have a right to 
expect the prompt purchase of a reasonable number of the new pub- 
lications. More new books have been added this year than last, many 
of them having been purchased at greatly reduced prices, advantage 
being taken of special sales and clearances of stock, while some per- 
fectly new books have been obtained at very low rates from second 
hand catalogues. There are so many demands upon a library for 
books, that it is necessary to make every effort to buy judiciously 
and at the lowest price. 

It is especially desirable during the coming year, to weed out 
the antiquated scientific books on the shelves, and to replace them 
by up-to-date volumes which may be of real practical assistance to 
the business men of the community, to the workmen in mills and 
shops, and to the students in the textile schools. The library in a 
town like Andover should have a working collection of books on 
textile industries. There is no doubt that technical and scientific 
books would be widely used, but such works are expensive, and the 
book fund of the library is limited. In order to fill some evident needs 
for the coming year, it seems almost a necessity that there should be 
an addition to the fund for the purchase of books. It may not be 
possible in the immediate future, for a special children's room to be 
forthcoming, but it does not seem unreasonable to hope that there 
may shortly be more money for books, so that the library may not 



119 

fail in its earnest endeavor to respond satisfactorily to every legiti 
mate call upon its resources. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EDNA A. BROWN. 

Librarian.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of the Tozvn of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works submit their ninth annual report, 
embracing the eleventh of the Sewer and the nineteenth of the 
Water systems for the year ending January 15th, 1908. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

Under-drains were laid in two of the filter beds, as well as in 
both sludge beds, during the past year. These repairs in the 
latter so increased their working capacity that it was found un- 
necessary to build the third bed mentioned in our last report. 

In November there was a bad washout which considerably 
damaged the bankings of filter beds Nos. 14 and 15, and caused 
an extra expense of maintenance. 

The cost for maintenance for the past year was $1355.69. For 
the coming year an appropriation of $1300.00 is asked. 

The bonded debt remains the same as last year, $70,000.00, and 
the Sinking Fund is $18,924.34, leaving a net bonded debt of 
$51,075.64. There will mature this year $20,000.00 of these 
bonds, and an appropriation of $4000.00 is asked for to be applied 
to this account. 

The system is in good condition, and no extraordinary repairs 
or improvements are contemplated or considered necessary. 

WATER SYSTEM 

The water system is in its usual satisfactory condition, with 
the exception of the gate valves, which will be put in good order 
during the coming year. 

The water main has been extended on Main Street with a total 
of 1480 feet of six inch pipe. In addition there has been laid on 



the property of the Smith & Dove Mfg. Co. 300 feet of eight 
inch pipe and 72. feet of six inch pipe, also on the property of the 
Tyer Rubber Co. 422 feet of eight inch, 132 feet of six inch and 
24 feet of four inch pipe. Total length of water mains now in 
the system is 31.351 miles. Three public hydrants have been 
added, two on Main Street and one on Shawsheen Road. Four 
private hydrants have also been added, three on the property of 
the Tyer Rubber Co., and one on that of Smith & Dove Mfg. Co. 
There have been twenty-eight applications for service, and of 
these twenty-seven have been accepted and the pipes laid. Three 
services have been discontinued, leaving a total of services now in 
use, 1060, of which 848 are metered. 

The receipts from water rates were $17,267.86, of which 
amount the sum of $3,513.26 was received from the City of Law- 
rence, a gain over last year of $3,751.39. 

The expense of maintenance is divided as follows : 



Pumping station, 


$4825 63 


Office expenses, 


1078 04 


Care of teams, reading meters, repairs and 




general maintenance, 


2015 28 


Repairs at reservoir, 


193 46 



$8112 41 

Gallons of water pumped, 242,125,757. 

Cost per million gallons figured on pumping expenses, $19.94. 
Cost per million gallons figured on total maintenance, $33.34. 
Receipts per million gallons, $75.48. 

The extraordinary expenses for the year have been the cost 
of painting the walls and ceilings of the boiler and engine rooms 
at the pumping station, painting the fence at the reservoir, and 
the taking up and repaving over one half of the southern slope 
of the reservoir. Also the cost of installing a lighting plant at 
the Pumping Station to furnish lights for the engine and boiler 
rooms, basement and coal shed by means of a 1.35 K. W. Gene- 
rator belt connected to a Pelton Wheel water motor. 



An appropriation of $7500.00 is asked for the expense of main- 
tenance for 1908, to be divided as follows: salaries, $3300.00; 
labor, $1900.00; fuel, $1500.00; and supplies, $800.00. 

An appropriation of $2062.27 is asked for new construction, of 
which amount $562.27 is to be refunded to the Sewer Department 
in a payment of a loan. 

The bonded debt of the Water System is now $135,000.00 of 
which amount $50,000.00 is redeemable by sinking funds which 
now amount to $18,135.35. The balance of the bonded debt is 
paid by annual appropriation by the Town at the rate of $6000.00 
per year. 

The contract of January 10, 1907, for supplying the City of 
Lawrence with water was terminated and the water connection 
discontinued April 30th. 49,252,224 gallons of water were sup- 
plied for which was received the sum of $3513.20. This service 
was thoroughly appreciated by the City of Lawrence and ren- 
dered with great satisfaction by the Town of Andover. The 
causes which gave rise to the great distress of our neighboring 
city, and created the emergency justifying our co-operation and 
assistance, have been remedied, and the City of Lawrence has 
every confidence that their water supply is adequate for their 
requirements in the future. 

By vote of the Town at the last town meeting the Board of Pub- 
lic Works was instructed to make rough surveys of the town to 
ascertain the approximate cost of extending water system to 
such streets as are not supplied. This work has been done on the 
east side of the Shawsheen River covering approximately 26 miles 
showing the cost of such extension to be $176,000.00, detailed re- 
port of which is to be found in the superintendent's report ac- 
companying. 

Very respectfully, 

FELIX G. HAYNES, 
LEWIS T. HARDY, 
JOHN W. BELL, 
JAMES C. SAWYER, 
ANDREW McTERNEN, 

Board of Public Works.

Thirty-five meters have been set during the year. Total number 
of meters in use, 848. 

Acting under instructions from your Board, rough surveys 
have been made of the twenty- four streets lying on the east side 
of the Shaw sheen upon which no pipes have been laid. These 
streets aggregate about 26 miles in length, have at the present 
time eighty-five houses built upon the area which they cover. The 
estimated cost is in round numbers about one hundred and 
seventy-six thousand dollars. A tabulated list of streets and esti- 
mated cost is herewith appended.

We widened the street between the late Warren Tuck's and the 
Cutler place by building a retaining wall and grading at a cost 
of $170, Mr. William M. Wood spending the same amount

colm's and grate in culvert at George Ward's, graveled sidewalks

Built vitrified brick sidewalk from J. E. Whiting's to J. P.

We now have from 350 to 400 tons of stone to crush at the

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR 



The Board of Overseers of the Poor, herewith present their 
annual report for the year ending December 31, 1908. The work 
of the Poor Department is clearly defined by the Statute laws, 
and the expenditures are governed, to a large extent, by the de- 
mands, over which the Overseers have control. Under these 
circumstances it is our aim to immediately aid all needy cases, 
always endeavoring to work for the best interests of the town, 
without doing injustice to the worthy poor whom we are bound 
to aid. 

On April 1, our former superintendent and matron, Mr. and 
Mrs. George L. Burnham, severed their connection with this 
department. But the town has been exceedingly fortunate in 
securing the services of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Swanton as super- 
intendent and matron, who have proved themselves in every 
way worthy of the trust reposed in them, kind and considerate 
to those entrusted to their care, while looking carefully after the 
interests of the town. 

During the year, the entire plumbing of the house has had to 
be replaced, entailing an expense that was not anticipated, and 
many changes have been made in the out-buildings, horse barn 
and wood-sheds moved back in line with rear of the Almshouse, 
old and useless buildings torn down, ground levelled and seeded 
down, not only vastly improving the appearance and making the 
rooms of the inmates pleasanter and more cheerful, but also 
saving the expense of keeping in repairs so many old and useless 
shells. 

With some small changes during the coining year, and the 
addition of a little paint, the town will have a set of buildings 
neat and in good repair, second to none in the State.

IN GENERAL 

Extra duties which this department was called upon to per- 
form during the past year have carried its expenses beyond the 

95 



amount appropriated. These expenses were due to the money 
necessary to meet the hiring of special officers on account of the 
feeling of uneasiness on the part of residents because of the con- 
tinued reports of hold-ups. These reports caused numerous 
complaints that had to be investigated, after requiring the ser- 
vices of a team as well as extra officers. 

In some instances we have gone to considerable expense to run 
down criminals, perhaps more than our limited means would jus- 
tify. On the night of August second a citizen of West Andover 
had his hen-house entered and twenty-five hens stolen. Septem- 
ber sixteenth we located in Boston an Italian whose home was in 
Lawrence, brought him before the Lawrence Police Court, and 
he was sent to the House of Correction for three months. This 
conviction cost the police department about sixteen dollars. 

On April second one of our residents had a valuable dog 
stolen. Several trips were made to Lynn. About a week later the 
guilty party was arrested and fined twenty-five dollars, at an 
expense of about ten dollars. Instances of this kind require the 
expenditure of considerable money, but seem to be necessary, or 
else let the guilty party go not apprehended. 

Owing to the fact that business generally has been dull the 
past summer, many people, particularly foreigners, have been out 
of work and roaming about. Complaints of larceny of fruit and 
vegetables have been numerous, and generally these people have 
been the offenders. Of those arrested the past year sixty-six 
have been non-residents. 

In the section of the town south of Punchard Avenue and be- 
tween Bartlet and Phillips streets, it has been almost impossible 
for some of the residents to derive any benefit from their gar- 
dens, and in some instances even their flowers and plants have 
disappeared. On this account, and owing to the fact that so many 
houses are vacant during the summer months, it has been neces- 
sary to employ officers to some extent in this section. Every 
season there are breaks in this location, which is poorly protected. 
For three hundred dollars a night watch could be maintained here 
from July to November. This I would recommend. 

9 6 



It is the aim of this department to have an officer within call 
at all times, and for this purpose a large bell connected with a 
telephone has been installed on the front of the town house which 
may be heard by an officer in the square. 

This telephone is maintained at an expense of about four 
dollars per month. 

AUTOMOBILES 

In the spring and early summer an automobile trap was main- 
tained, resulting in the arrest and conviction of a number for 
excessive speed. On account of an agreement between the au- 
thorities and the automobile association the trap was discontinued 
for about a month. The association failed to keep its agreement 
and it was found advisable to maintain the trap again. A number 
of arrests and convictions followed, and while the fines from 
these cases were turned into the town treasury ($290.00), none 
of the money was available to meet the expenses of this depart- 
ment.. 

There has been some criticism about the advisibility of main- 
taining an automobile trap. I believe the trap has been a success 
in a marked degree, not merely owing to the fact that we have 
secured convictions, but that autoists being aware that a trap 
was operated in Andover used more caution in driving through 
the town. 

During the month that it was known that no trap might be 
found, the speed limit was over run to a greater extent. 

Considerable leeway has been allowed in each case. The allow- 
able speed was more than doubled before an arrest was made.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



The end of the new work in the Common is in sight. Another 
year will see the place in excellent shape. This year the dam was 
made permanent and the north side of the brook walled in, walks 
laid out and the grading completed as far as the grove. The 
Commissioners hope to introduce many native plants and shrubs. 
Following this plan a bed of native viburnums, one of cardinal 
flower, rhodora, and a few others have been set out this year. 
Three seats were placed in the grove and they seem to fill a 
popular want. 

In Carmel Park the bushes bordering the paths have been cut 
and a great deal of trimming done. The reservation is in good 
shape. The Commissioners regret to note a spirit of destruction 
which seems to prevail at times. The seats in Carmel Park which 
were built years ago, and which with good care would last a life- 
time, have been practically ruined by having the zinc covering cut 
and dented in many places. 

The town gives generously of its money to provide pleasure 
for all. It is to be regretted that this is defeated in part by the 
selfishness and lawlessness of the few. The action of the Select- 
men in appointing a special park policeman did much to correct 
this evil. There is, however, room for much improvement. 

The town sustained a great loss in the death of Air. T. Franklin 
Pratt, one of the Park Commissioners. He took an active interest 
in this department and had been for four years a most useful 
member of the Commission. 

With the appropriation of $1000. for this year, your board 
believes that the construction work in the Common will be com- 
pleted so that about one-half that sum will thereafter supply the 
annual needs for maintenance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN N. COLE, 

MYRON E. GUTTERSON, 

Park Commissioners.

TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



In again making my report to the citizens of Andover, I wish 
to thank the property owners for their efforts in cooperating 
with us to suppress the Gypsy and Browntail moths by trimming 
out old and worthless trees and removing the undergrowth from 
around the walls and fields in the outlying districts. During the 
past year, we have cut out some 10 miles of roadway back to the 
wall and about 5 miles of roadway has been trimmed in order 
to make it passable for teams, and all the brush has been burned. 

I would ask that the residents of Andover kindly notify the 
tree warden of any bad colonies of Gypsy moths they may find 
from time to time in the wood lots, as in that way the Gypsy 
moth may be held in check. 

I will also recommend that a power sprayer be purchased at 
once in order to be used this coming season in spraying our 
Elm trees for the Elm Beetle which is now found in large num- 
bers in our town. With the cooperation of the State Gypsy 
Moth Commission, we have been able to get Mr. Rogers, Super- 
intendent for the U. S. Government Commission interested in 
our town and in that way considerable help has been promised 
to us in the outlying districts in suppressing the Gypsy and 
Browntail pest, and I would again ask that a sum, not less than 
Three Thousand dollars be appropriated in order that this work 
can be continued. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. H. PLAYDON, 

Tree Warden.

REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF MILK 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

Gentlemen : — I hereby present my second annual report as 
Inspector of Milk. 42 licenses have been issued, 27 to pedlers 
and 15 to stores for the sale of milk and cream. 

There were quite a few changes during the year. Several new 
licenses were issued and a number of small dealers gave it up. 

Samples have been taken as usual and all were found to be 
satisfactory. Many samples have also been brought to be tested. 

During the spring there was considerable complaint about the 
taste and color of the milk throughout the town, which was evi- 
dently caused by some variety of feed, as this condition only 
lasted about two weeks when the milk returned to the normal. 

A few complaints about the condition of the cans were quickly 
remedied by the dealers. 

I visited most of the cow barns throughout the West and 
Osgood Districts and found them in most cases to be satisfactory. 
All seemed to be well ventilated, but there was a general lack of 
sunlight. This could be changed at a slight expense by putting 
in more windows and keeping them clean and repaired, and 
would benefit the farmer as well as the milk consumer. 

The standard for milk was changed by the Legislature of 1908, 
Chapt. No. 643. 

Instead of a standard of 3.7 Butter fats and 13 per cent total 
Solids for 6 months and 3 per cent Butter fats and 12 per cent 
total Solids for 6 months, there is now an all the year round 
standard of 3.35 per cent Butter fats and 12.15 P er cent total 
Solids. 

All of the samples taken in Andover by the State Board of 

103 



Health were up to the Standard, making an excellent showing 
for the local dealers. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANKLIN H. STACEY, Ph C. 



I would like to suggest a few things to those who receive their 
milk in cans. Pour out the milk as soon as received, wash can 
with boiling water and soap, rinse thoroughly, dry in sun and 
do not replace stopper, simply lay it across the top of the can. 
If this is done, the disagreeable odor, especially noticable in warm 
weather would disappear. 

FRANKLIN H. STACEY, Ph. C. 
Inspector of milk.

SPRING GROVE CEMETERY 



The Trustees of Spring Grove Cemetery herewith submit 
their annual report for the year 1908. 

The usual work appertaining to the care of the cemetery has 
been carefully carried out. New lots have been graded and the 
cemetery is in good condition for the purposes pertaining to its 
use. The proceeds from the sale of lots will not be sufficient for 
the care of the cemetery during the coming year, therefore your 
committee ask for the usual appropriation as heretofore made 
by the Town.

REPORT OF LIBRARIAN 



To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library. 

Gentlemen : — I herewith submit the report of the library for 
the year ending December 31, 1908. 

The work of reorganization has been carried on throughout 
the year though the constantly increasing use of the library makes 
great inroads upon the time available for these changes. All the 
books are now equipped with the new loan system and nearly 
7500 have been re-accessioned. Not until this work is completed, 
can the exact number of volumes in the library be stated. So 
far, there are 9573 entries in the new accession books, probably 
more than half the library. It is hoped to complete this work 
during the coming year. As undesirable, worn, and out-of-date 
books are being gradually withdrawn, this record when fin- 
ished, will show a smaller number of books in the library than be- 
fore its reorganization, but the library shelves will be cleared of 
useless volumes, and its practical value increased. 

In the library report for 1907, it was recommended that a 
collection of industrial books should be planned, and it is one 
of the most gratifying items in the year's work that so much has 
been accomplished in this line. It was commenced by gifts from 
the Smith & Dove Company and the Tyer Rubber Company of 
books relating to their special industries. Additions have been 
made by purchases and by gifts from other sources, until the 
library has the nucleus of a really good collection. This has been 
much appreciated and will grow in use. Men who have 
never before shown any interest in the library are taking cards 
especially to use these books. We hope during 1909 to fill still 
further such wants of the community. A library legitimately fur- 
nishes material for recreative reading, but its tendency in pur- 
chasing books is often to over-emphasize on the side of general 

136 



literature, when it should grow along practical lines as well. 
We may regard with pride our little industrial collection. 

Another gratifying feature of the year's accomplishment is the 
French and German collection. At the beginning of 1908, the 
library had two books in French and one in German. Now there 
are 78 volumes in French and 33 in German. All these have been 
gifts from different people in Andover, and have cost the library 
only the price of binding those which were in paper covers. It 
is an excellent collection, including not only classic authors, but 
modern writers. This collection also has met a real need in the 
town. 

We have not had much more money to spend for books than 
I last year, but by taking advantage of sales and buying chiefly 
through one agent we have added for the amount we had to spend, 
a large number of books. It is not possible for us to buy all the 
new fiction, and we mean to buy only that small proportion which 
has some real worth. We are frequently prevented from pur- 
chasing other books of undoubted value because of their pro- 
hibitive prices at time of publication. By delaying for a little 
these can often be obtained at one third or one half their original 
price. But we try to buy promptly any book whose value partly 
depends upon its being a timely issue, and in a few cases we 
have duplicated books of especial local interest. 

We have had as usual this year the income from the Phillips 
fund for the purchase of religious and ethical books, and in addi- 
tion, the income from another Phillips fund for the purchase of 
books for teachers. This has enabled us to strengthen our edu- 
cational collection. We have added about thirty volumes on 
practical and theoretical school work. The teachers appreciate 
these additions and are making increased use of the library. 

The Phoebe Foxcroft Phillips Chapter of the D t A. R. has 
presented to the library two sets of historical works, Woodrow 
Wilson's History of the United States in five volumes, and the 
seven volume set of the Old South Leaflets. These are especially 
valuable for reference. The Andover Village Improvement So- 
ciety has continued its gift of magazines to the library, and the 
representatives of the W. C. T. U. permitted the accumulated 

137 



interest of their funded gift to be spent in the purciase of 
children's books. 

Our bills for binding books this year are large, but they are a 
necessary expense. Cheap binding never pays in the end, fo un- 
less a book is properly done at the first rebinding, it doe^ not 
wear, and is is then spoiled for any further treatment andean 
never be satisfactorily done again. The re-binding this year'ias 
been done chiefly in Cambridge, the sections of the books beng 
sewn on tapes, and they are wearing well. The average chile's 
book has to be rebound after circulating ten or fifteen timer,. 
This is not wholly due to careless handling, but in part to the 
original flimsy case binding used by the publisher. After being 
stoutly rebound, they will circulate three or four times as long, 
and still be in good condition. Some of the publishers are now 
issuing books in re-inforced binding especially for library use. 
These cost at time of first purchase, ten cents additional. We 
buy these "library editions" whenever they can be obtained. They 
are not as attractive in appearance, but some of them have circu- 
lated ninety times and are still stout and unbroken in binding. 

The story hour for children was successfully carried through 
the winter of 1907-08, stories being told twice a week until the 
first of April, on Tuesday afternoons to little girls, and on Fri- 
day evenings to boys. Miss Twichell has again begun with the 
Thanksgiving and Christmas stories, and this winter is planning, 
in addition to the weekly stories for the little children, an addi- 
tional series on Scottish history for the older Scotch boys. Only 
a few of the children who heard the stories last winter are in- 
cluded in these groups. Most of them are now reading for 
themselves, and so a set of children a size smaller have been 
invited. Owing to lack of room for both books and children, 
further development of the children's work must be deferred. 

The reference use of the library has been of the usual character 
throughout the year. Lists for the programmes of the local clubs 
have been compiled, and the usual bulletins made for the reading 
room, the subjects varying with the season. A list of the educa- 
tional books in the library was compiled at the request of the 
superintendent of schools for the use of the teachers. The 

138 



students of both public schools and academies are making in- 
creased use of the library for their debates and theses. We 
have had a travelling library on Egypt from the Woman's Edu- 
cational Association with the accompanying photographs and from 
the Forbes Library of Northampton, the loan of a number of 
photographs of English castles and palaces. 

Aside from gifts of books and pamphlets, the library has again 
to thank the town for many flowers. As long as there have been 
flowers in Andover, there have been flowers in the library where 
they are a source of pleasure to many. This winter there are an 
unusual number of plants to make the reading room pleasant. 

As may be seen from the appended statistics, the use and 
circulation of the library show a marked increase over even 1907. 
During 1908, 34,872 books were issued. This is a gain of 6157 
over 1907, and an increase of 17,104 as compared with 1906. 
For a town the size of Andover, 35,000 is rather above the usual 
rate. 

The attention of the trustees and the town is again called to 
the crowded condition of the library and the lack of room for 
readers. The library is doing the best it can under present con- 
ditions but it is sadly cramped for room. Andover, which has 
always been noted for its high standards, and its appreciation of 
all educational influences, should not drop behind other Massachu- 
setts towns in providing its library with the means for useful 
growth and with suitable quarters in which to grow. 
Respectfully, 

EDNA A. BROWN, 

Librarian.

INFORMATION FOR USERS OF THE LIBRARY 



The Memorial Hall Library is open every day except Sundays and 
legal holidays from 9 to 12.30 in the morning, and from 3 to 9 in the 
afternoon and evening. 

Any resident of Andover over ten years of age may have a library 
card upon filling out an application blank. Children in grades below 
the Punchard School, are required to have their applications en- 
dorsed by both parent and teacher. 

All grown people are allowed to take two books, provided that 
one only is fiction. This privilege is also given to the Punchard 
pupils. Teachers are permitted to draw ten books strictly fcr school 
use. These books are subject to the ordinary rules of the library. 

Books are issued for fourteen days, the date upon which the book is due 
being stamped plainly upon the "date due" slip at the time of issue. 
A book kept overtime incurs a fine of two cents for every day over- 
due. A few of the books most in demand are issued for seven days 
only. All these are labelled upon the book pocket, "Seven day book". 
Books lost or damaged must be paid for. 

Fiction is not renewed or reserved for anyone. Books other than 
fiction may be renewed if no one else has asked for them, and if a 
work other than fiction is specially desired for any serious purpose, 
notice of its return to the library will be sent on request. 

The shelves of the whole library are open to all grown people. 
The books are arranged according to subjects, and it is usually much 
more satisfactory to go to the shelves and examine the books than 
to depend upon the catalogue. 

The only complete index of the contents of the library is the card 
catalogue. The printed catalogue of the books was issued ten years 
ago, and is out-of-date, besides containing the names of many books 
which are no longer in the library. The new books are listed at 
intervals in the weekly paper, and cumulated in the yearly library 
report, but the only complete record is the card catalogue. This 
catalogue is arranged alphabetically like a dictionary. To find 
whether any given book is in the library, look for it under the sur- 

142 



name of the author, or under its title. The right hand drawers of 
the case contain a second arrangement of cards where the books are 
entered according to the subjects of which they treat. 

The new books purchased each month are placed for some weeks 
in a special case on the north side of the reading room, so that the 
most recent additions to the library may be found there. The library 
buys only a limited amount of new fiction, but it tries to fill the 
wants of the community in regard to other books desired. People 
are invited to suggest for purchase the titles of such books as they 
wish. 

The library staff are always glad to answer questions or in any 
way to help visitors find what they want.

REPORT OF 
CUSTODIAN OF JOHN CORNELL ART GALLERY 



To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library — 

Gentlemen : — The Cornell Art Gallery has been visited dur- 
ing the year by 1102 persons; of this number 877 were adults 
and 225 were children, an average daily attendance of 11. 

The wise decision of the Trustees to restrict the use of the 
art room to persons over fourteen unless accompanied by an 
adult has, naturally, caused a decrease in attendance, but has had 
good results. 

The Gallery has had many out-of-town visitors, all of whom 
have expressed great pleasure over the beautiful collection. 

Our stereographs have been enriched by five of the Underwood 
and Underwood tours, Panama, Burma, Canada, Ecuador and 
Peru. These tours are, as usual, of high quality, and most in- 
teresting, in fact "a marvel of realism." 

It is hoped that more people will visit the Gallery during 
the coming year to study and enjoy its fine pictures and stereo- 
graphs, a combination of great educational value. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ABBIE S. DAVIS. 

Andover, Mass., Jan. 1, 1909.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of the Town of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works submit their tenth annual report, 
embracing the twelfth of the Sewer and the twentieth of the 
Water systems for the year ending January 14, 1909. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

Sewer mains have been laid on Walnut Avenue, 378 feet in 
length, and on Wolcott Avenue, 1102 feet. These extensions 
were paid for from cash on hand for construction work, but any 
further extensions to the system must be provided for by new 
appropriations from the Town. 

The bonded debt is now $50,000, there having matured $20,000 
during the past year. The Sinking Fund is $4480 51, leaving 
a net bonded debt of $45519 49. In 1913 there will mature 
$20,000 of these bonds and an appropriation of $4,000 is asked 
for to be applied to this account. 

The cost of maintenance for the past year has been $1,385 85. 
An appropriation of $1,350 00 is asked for the present year. 

Two applications for sewer mains have been received, one of 
which, Harding street, has already been accepted, and the other, 
Buxton Court, must be referred to the Town for action. 

The sewer system is in good condition. No extraordinary 
repairs are contemplated, and none are necessary. 

WATER SYSTEM 

In accordance with the vote of the Town, May nth, 1908, a 
High Service system has been installed and is in successful 
operation. Also by the authority of the same vote extensions 
of the water mains have been made on a number of streets of 
the Town, as shown in the accompanying tables. 



The estimated cost of the High Pressure Service to include 
a reservoir on Prospect hill, a pumping plant and pipe distribu- 
tion was $28441 7J . The actual cost to date is $28,613 90, with 
the contract for Telemeter service amounting to $600 .00 to be 
paid for. 

Comparison of estimate with actual cost: 

Estimated Actual 

Reservoir, including land damages $ 7,700 00 $ 8,184 95 

(Changed location to a higher level, cost $500.) 

Pumping Plant 4,400 00 5,663 59 

Pipe distribution, including water mains on 
Main, Reservoir and Salem Streets, Hidden 
and Prospect Hill Roads, and Reservoir ap- 
proach, and cost of tools and engineering, 15,451 77 15,565 36

laid water mains, not included in the original estimate, but in 
accordance with the vote of the Town authorizing extensions 
on a basis of a 2 per cent income return, on the following streets :

forty-two applications for service, and of these forty-one have 
been accepted, and the pipes laid. There are 1101 services now 
in use, of which 884 are metered. 

The receipts from water rates were $14,908 89, a gain of 
$1,392 49 over last year, excluding those from the City of Law- 
rence. 

The expense of maintenance is divided as follows :

maintenance for 1909, to be divided as follows : Salaries, 
$3,200 00; Labor, $2,200 00; Fuel, $1,950 00; and supplies 
$850 00. 

The bonded debt of the Water System is now $164,000 of 
which amount $50,000 is redeemable by sinking funds which 
now amount to $19634 54. The balance of the bonded debt 
is paid by annual appropriations by the Town, at the rate of 
$8000 per year. An appropriation of $750 is asked for the sink- 
ing fund accounts. 

The State Board of Health has established rules and regula- 
tions governing Haggetts Pond, which have been printed and 
posted in conspicuous places. 

The water system is in good condition. 
Very respectfully,

Thirty-six new meters have been set during the year, the total 
number in use is 884. 

The High service system ordered by vote of the Town, May 
nth, 1908 has been practically completed and was put in com- 
mission November 1st, 1908. 

The construction of this system varies from the original de- 
sign as submitted inasmuch as the reservoir has been built with 
high water line at elevation 406 increasing the pressure 17 pounds 
to the square inch over what was originally planned, this of course 
required that the pumping machinery be more powerful and con- 
sequently more expensive. A thorough investigation indicated 
that while an oil engine was more expensive in first cost than a 
gasoline, the safety and economy of operation warranted the 
additional expenditure, these changes made an additional cost 
of about $1400 00, notwithstanding this however, the construction 
has been accomplished at approximately the estimate as submitted 
and well within the appropriation as made. 

The system consists of an earthern reservoir of half a million 
gallons capacity, built partly in excavation and partly embank- 
ment, it is built in the form of an inverted frustrum of a cone 
61 feet in diameter atthe bottom with both inside and outside 
slopes 1-2 to 1, 13 feet deep from the overflow and 16 1-2 feet 
from the top of the embankment, the bottom is floored with a 
layer of concrete 6 inches deep and the inner slope is paved with 

20 



granite blocks I 1-2 feet above the overflow. It was built by 
contract with D. Linehan & Sons of Prides Crossing who used 
every effort to obtain good results, and that absolutely no leakage 
can be discovered is most gratifying and a credit to them. The 
water is pumped from the Low service system, the pumping 
plant being located at the corner of Reservoir street and the 
reservoir approach. The pumping plant consists of a 10x10 
"Deane Triplex Power Pump" direct connected to a "Meitz & 
Weiss Oil Engine" of 25 H. P. capable of pumping 410 gallons 
per minute to the reservoir. The new pipe laid for the high ser- 
vice is shown elsewhere, in addition the following streets have 
been disconnected from the low and connected with the High 
service, Chapel avenue, Salem street, Highland Road, Prof. 
Moorehead's Reservoir street, from Reservoir approach to Holt 
street, Holt street, from Reservoir to Salem street, and Main 
street, south of Reservoir street. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

378 feet of 6 inch common sewer was laid on Walnut Avenue 
and hoi. 7 feet on Wolcott Avenue. Five manholes were built. 
Underdrains were laid on both Walnut and Wolcott Avenues. 
This was expensive work owing to the deep cutting and rock 
excavation. 

19 applications for house connections were received and 18 
connections laid. 

Total number of applications to date, 515. 

Total number of connections in service, 493. 

Length of connections laid during 1908, 912 feet. 

Total length of connections in service, 31 189 feet. 

Some slight repairs will be required on the low level pumps 
this year, otherwise the system is in a satisfactory condition. 
Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN E. SMITH.
